Summary
Families Facing Death was the first book to comprehensively address the problems of families facing the struggle of living with dying. This updated paperback edition combines theoretical information with specific suggestions for developing the critical skills needed to manage psychosocial symptoms for the patient and family, both during illness and after death. In this down-to-earth, practical guide the author's valuable insights show healthcare professionals how to help families define and facilitate the tasks they must undertake to adjust to this difficult time. Intrinsic to the author's approach is the belief that illness and loss represent more than simply a crisis for the family; they also present a tremendous opportunity for self-awareness, transformation, and growth
